Oklahoma Reaffirms Law of Gravity

A federal judge in Oklahoma–apparently visiting the state from the 21st century–enjoined enforcement of the recently-passed referendum banning consideration of Shariah law, among other things, from consideration by Oklahoma courts.  On November 22 the judge will hear arguments on whether the “Save Our State” amendment violates the First Amendment.  70% of Oklahomans (Oklahopersons?) voted for the ban.  To put it another way, seventy percent voted in favor of a law banning a practice that has not happened, and has no legal basis for happening, under the U.S. Constitution.
